    2021 Awards for Excellence Nominations Register

    Award Nominations  

    Council subscribers of LGMA Queensland may nominate projects for the LGMA Queensland Awards for Excellence.  Councils may submit numerous projects.  Multiple nominations are permitted in all categories.  A project or initiative may be nominated in up to two categories and each will be treated as a separate nomination.  If nominating a project in more than one category, nominators should ensure the nomination is tailored to address the category requirements. A fee of $350.00 applies to each nomination.  A tax invoice will be issued once a nomination has been received online.

    Nomination Guidelines - sections 1-5 should be no more than one page or a maximum of 350-400 words each.

    Section 1: Introduction and Overview - Nominations must provide an overview of the project/initiative outlining the key outcomes and achievements.  The Introduction/Overview will be published in the Awards for Excellence publication so it should offer a standalone description and be tailored for a local government audience.

    Section 2: A statement outlining how the nomination meets the category requirement i.e. how the project exemplifies Collaboration or Teamwork or Innovation etc.

    Please refer to the Award Category section of the Nomination Guidelines. 

    Section 3: A description of the impact/outcome including evidence of: 

    Its impact on council and or the community; How the outcomes were measured and
    Details of the project's ongoing status (If applicable).

    Section 4: A statement regarding the possible transferability of the initiative for use in other areas or councils and comment on why this project/initiative stands out from other initiatives across the state (including to what extent it is unique).

    Section 5: Supporting information - submissions may include references from people affected by the project or other evidence outcomes including: media articles, community newsletters etc.

    Section 6: Social Media Release - please include a promotional media release. This should be 200 words and tailored for the general public rather than an informed local government audience.  It will be posted to the LGMA socials (Facebook and LinkedIn) in the lead up to the Awards.

    Section 7: Nominations must include:

    • Online Registration for each nomination
    • Four hard copies of your submission (including sections 1-6 above).  An original copy of your submission is passed on to each of the Award Judges in order to avoid risk transfer.
    • A USB with a copy of your submission (named as: Council name_Project title_Category) 
    • 3-5 high resolution photographs are also to be included on the USB.  Preferably these are to be included in a single submission document but, if this is not possible, they should be named Council name_Project title_Category_Photo.  Numbering should be applied where more than one document is included i.e. Part 2 of 3.

    Nominations must be received in full by 3.00pm on Wednesday 21 April, 2021.
